“Novelty” is the word that best summarizes the Spring 2013 John Galliano Men’s collection. So much so that the collection seemed somehow untrue to his label & more akin to the work created in the heyday of the late, great Franco Mochino for his whimsical Cheap & Chic collection. Regardless, the cuts were beautiful & proportionally dead on for the season, which is shaping up to be about loose proportions layered to create a silhouette that is at first a bit vintage in feel, but the softer fit of the shoulders ground the pieces firmly in the here & now.
The collection was predominantly Black & White in coloration, save for the bright Red lobster worn about one model’s neck as a sort of necklace, for lack of a better descriptive noun. When worn not as full looks, but rather as pieces mixed into one’s existing wardrobe, they will fill a definite need in most closets.
